Thanks for the details.

If I understand correctly:

A - fails (card not present at power-on, added later)
B - works (card always present)
C - works (card present at power-on, later removed and re-added,
requires manual rescan)

I see this note in section 9.4.8 (BIOS setup) of the conga-BAF User's Guide:

Note: Unless the hotplug support for this port is enabled as well,
an unpopulated
port will still be disabled if no PCI Express device is connected.

If you don't have hotplug enabled in the BIOS setup, it sounds like it
might result in the behavior you're seeing. Do you have that enabled?
